ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

I’m a British designer, artist, born and raised in the heart of the West Midlands, England, and a person with a passion for all things creative. I’m also wild about intricate, classical European design and lean very heavily towards loving all that is opulent. My Pakistani heritage has blessed me to inherit a rich culture that you’ll often find influences my work to be “richer” than other conventional invitation designers.

 

I’m a graduate from The Nottingham Trent University, with a Textile Design degree. Constantly craving for inspiration to fuel my imagination and take my work to the new heights you will find me at my happiest, walking through palaces in Paris, France or finding new Quinta’s to explore in Sintra, Portugal hand in hand with my Portuguese- Parisienne husband. History has shaped who we are as humans and holds a wealth of possibilities in terms of where we can go if we just open our hearts and minds. New countries, cultures and historical places are where I find a spark that lights up my creativity.

I am at my happiest when:
Painting new designs
Trying out a high-end restaurant of cafe with my family
Eating dark chocolate with a cuppa tea
Visiting the countryside for a walk
Skiing down the slopes of Megeve
Watching Poldark, Downtown Abbey, Vikings or any period drama

I received the package yesterday and the invitations surpassed my expectations entirely. Everything was so beautifully prepared, right down to the packaging. Every piece is exquisite. I'm just amazed and feel so excited to present these beautiful invitations to my guests. I adore the place cards and the watercolour of our venue too, stunning - so much loveliness. A million times thank you for your efforts. I'm just thrilled! And I love the wax seal colour on the RSVP - perfection!!!

Rubana was an absolute delight to work with!  She listened to what my hopes were and what she delivered was above and beyond, her calligraphy is so effortlessly beautiful!  Not to mention, I needed something from her on super short notice and what she was able to create was so intricate and thoughtful.  Her work is the highest quality, and her attention to detail is incredible.  I would work with Rubana again and again!

Rubana created a bespoke and incredibly heartfelt stationary for our wedding, we could feel she put her love and attention in every brush stroke. She was absolutely wonderful from the first email contact she was attentive, professional and someone my husband and I loved dealing with - it was clear she loved her art. Creating our wedding stationary with her meant she gave us her creative advise, guided us and wanted our input - we gave her complete creative freedom and the results were really special, totally exceeded our expectations. We were both completely blown away with her art and still feel so privileged that our paths crossed and she created such wonderful invitation suite for us. Our family and friends felt the same. What makes it all even more special is her, really one in a million and incredibly attentive.

I've had the pleasure of working with Crimson Letters twice now and both times she has blown me away. Aside from the fact that her work is unique and absolutely gorgeous, her professionalism and ease to work with makes hiring her a no-brainer. I am obsessed with her attention to detail...it's unlike any other stationary I have seen! She makes it easy to get lost in her work. I'm so grateful I have had the opportunity to create with her beautiful art.

Forever a fan,
Nicole Ashley

I appreciated all of the time and thought she putsinto each piece of her work. She worked with my vision and exceeded my expectations. Her creativity and handiwork are jaw dropping! I cannot wait to work with her again as I am convinced anything she produces will be sure to impress.
